Recent paintings by Don Voisine

September 10th - October 5th, 2006

R-Value is a term referring to properties of materials and is applicable in describing soils and aggregates, insulation, and computer science. The R stands for resistance; the value is the capacity of a material to impede heat flow. Increasing values indicate a greater capacity. Don Voisine is an artist with a great capacity for abstract geometric painting. He has been practicing this skill for over thirty years, beginning in Maine. Since 1976 he's lived and worked in New York City, where he exhibits his paintings frequently. He's also shown extensively in museums and galleries across the United States. Voisine has been a member of the American Abstract Artists since 1997 and in 2004 became president of the esteemed organization. That same year he received an Edward Albee Fellowship. Voisine was recently granted a painting fellowship by the New York Foundation for the Arts. The works in R-Value, which Voisine created specifically for Abaton Garage, are named not only for the insulating abilities of their styrofoam bases but for various race car drivers whose velocity inspired the artist. While speed is not necessarily a quality valued by abstract artists, most would agree that some degree of quickness is important, especially where the intellect is concerned. One would guess Voisine has surpassed many a driver here.

Please join us for the opening reception of R-Value at Abaton Garage on September 10th from 3-7PM. Ben Miller (formerly of Destroy All Monsters) will perform a solo saxophone set at 6:00. Refreshments will be served throughout the afternoon/evening.
